Candle Wishlist.

Untitled #34

My house is generally resembles a church, I usually have at least 2 or 3 candles burning as well as my wax tart burner. There is nothing more relaxing than a flickering candle and a gorgeous scent floating in the air. I've been buying £1 candles from Poundland recently, and as much as I love the scent they are so tiny they only last for a few days. I had a gorgeous one from Body Shop, that I got for Christmas, it was so fresh and a really good size, I managed to get a good 20 hours burning time. Unfortunatly my bank balance hasn't allowed me to buy another, or any of the other candles I've been lusting after so I thought I would do a wishlist for when I have some pennies.

Wax Lyrical Quinoa Passion Fruit Soy Candle - I love soy candles, well any natural candle really. It's lovely to have them burn clear instead of leaving that awful black soot on the jar. I thought the scent sounded really fruity, which I love in a candle.

Busy Bee Lemon Candle - I discovered Busy Bee candles via Twitter a while back. I've never got chance to try one but I love that they are handmade in Wales. The jars are so cute too. I'm desperate to try these and their waxed tarts!

Woodwick Trilogy Spices Candle - I only discovered Woodwick this weekend, when I was back home in Collectables. I love the idea of a wooden wick instead of the usual type. Apparently this helps the candle last longer and burn more evenly - this is such a fab idea, I hate it when half the candle is left in the jar cos it hasn't burnt evenly.

Village Candle Chocolate Brownie - I discovered this brand on secret sales and actually thought it was Yankee until I looked closer. I love candles in jars and this one looks huge! And I can't think of anything better than my house smelling like Chocolate Brownie. They also do other fancy flavours that I've never come across before.

Rituals Lavender Fields - Rituals is a brand I've wanted to try for ages, I've heard amazing reviews. I love the design of this candle and the smell of lavender is just perfect. This would be such a good candle to have for a relaxing bath or just before bed time to chill you out.

Yankee Candle Black Cherry - I hate cherry flavoured sweets or other things, but I love cherries and the smell. Of course, I had to include a Yankee Candle in this wishlist - I love the jars, they fit well in any room too. I swear by Yankee waxed tarts and the hubby loves them too, but I've only every had a handful of their proper jarred candles, I think its time I got another.

I would LOVE to try other amazing candles like NEOM and Diptyque but my purse strings will not stretch that far anytime soon.
